Cup of Coffee: Yorke notches three more hits; Mieses paces WooSox


9/2 Cup of Coffee:
The system has reached the point of the season where they play either 10 games in a day or two. After Tuesday's epic slate, the team had only two games on Wednesday with Portland and Salem both victims of the rain along the east coast. Worcester picked up a comeback victory led by Johan Mieses (pictured), while Greenville dropped its contest despite continued hot hitting from Nick Yorke

Despite a roster depleted by all the recent calls to the major league club, the WooSox came through with a come-from-behind victory. Down by one heading into the ninth inning, a Jhonny Pereda bases-loaded double brought home two runs. Johan Mieses blasted a two-run homer in the seventh that got Worcester on the board. Mieses would later walk and score on the Pereda double. Grant Williams and Franchy Cordero had two hits apiece, with Cordero contributing a double and scoring a pair. Starter Daniel Gossett was solid, allowing one run on four hits in five innings, striking out two, and walking one. Eduard Bazardo continued his rehab with two innings of work, allowing one run. Durbin Feltman surrendered a home run in the eighth that broke a 2-2 tie but got credit for the win as Worcester took the lead that he secured with a perfect ninth.

Portland Sea Dogs @ New Hampshire Fisher Cats (TOR) (postponed)
It was the ninth time this season a game between Portland and New Hampshire was either postponed or suspended due to rain. The teams will try for a doubleheader on Sunday

-----

Another day, another multi-hit game for Nick Yorke. The 2020 first-round pick had two infield hits and an opposite-field flare for three singles, bringing him to 13 for 29 in seven games since his promotion from Salem. Christian Koss got back up with a base hit the day after his 14-game hitting streak was snapped. Jaxx Groshans was on base twice with a single and a walk. Starter Chase Shugart took the loss, allowing four runs on eight hits in five innings, striking out seven without issuing a walk.

Salem Red Sox vs. Fredericksburg Nationals (WAS) (postponed)
The Sox and Nats were rained out for a second straight day, so they will try to get in doubleheaders on Thursday and Friday. 

-----

Player of the Day: Sure, Nick Yorke had three hits again, but they weren't as authoritative as all those other three-hit games he has, so the nod goes to Johan Mieses. Mieses accounted for three of Worcester four runs, blasting a two-run homer to knot the game in the seventh and then coming home on a bases-loaded double in the ninth to give the WooSox the victory, The homer was the 18th on the year for Mieses, putting him into a tie with Joe Davis and Tyler Dearden for the organizational lead.
